An adaptation of another work from the famous lesbian writer, Sarah Waters (Tipping the Velvet, Fingersmith), opens as a story on the backdrop of the 1940s of three young women, Kay, Helen, Viv, and Viv’s brother, Duncan, who are fighting two wars at the same time. Amongst the bombs falling over London they find the opportunity for amorous adventures and sexual freedom for which up until now they had only dreamed of. The victory of war for them is bitter-sweet, because it returns them tied to the edge of the conventions of British society.
